March 29, 1859

Mary Brewster’s journal for her voyage from 1845 – 1848 ended on March 8, 1848 when the Tiger arrived home (Stonington, CT). Mary and her husband, Samuel did not return to sea for their last voyage until June 1848. However, Mary’s journal-writing did not resume until July 13, 1848.

Mary Lawrence, [Tue.] MARCH 29 [1859]: “Saw a ship today steering in the same direction with ourselves. Made Maui this afternoon, but as the weather was unpleasant with a head wind, we made but little headway, laying off and on part of the night.”

Eliza Williams made sporadic journal entries from Feb. 27 – Apr. 21, 1861.
